Cape Mediation is a Supreme Judicial Court approved program sanctioned by the Massachusetts District Courts. Since 1989, we have provided quality court-based mediation to the communities of Barnstable and Nantucket Counties and supported our courts in their work to solve challenging conflicts and resolve disputes. We generally service 750 cases a year, with an overall agreement rate of 80%.

Cape Mediation offers the parties the opportunity to discuss their cases in a safe, neutral, and structured way.
Cape Mediation has been providing mediation services for this court in the fields of summary process and small claims for over a decade. These services are of extraordinary value to both the court and the parties.
